|BILL:||Requests for Draft Bills|
|MOTION:||Moved to amend Section 39-29-109.3 (1), C.R.S. (Tier 1 of Severance Tax Trust Fund Operational Account). Add a new paragraph that appropriates to the Division of Water Resources up to 5 percent of the moneys in the Operational Account of the Severance Tax Trust Fund created in Section 39-29-109 (2) (b). Include paragraphs that identify current recipients of Tier 1 moneys: (a) Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission; (b) Colorado Geological Survey; (c) Division of Reclamation, Mining, and Safety; (d) Colorado Water Conservation Board; (e) Division of Wildlife; and (f) Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation. Leave blank the percent of the Operational Account moneys to be transferred to these programs. The committee will decide how to reduce these transfers to accommodate the new transfer to the Division of Water Resources.|
3) Draft a narrow bill title that precludes amendments to adjust fees collected by the Division of Water Resources.
The motion passed on a vote of 8-0. Final action on the draft bills is tentatively scheduled for September 30, 2009, in HCR 0112 in the State Capitol Building.
